Rockfall Protection on Highway 1, Abu Ghosh

Trumer Schutzbauten is a leading manufacturer of natural hazard protection systems.

In Rosch Haayin and Abu Ghosh, mitigation structures like rockfall protection fences, nets, and wire meshes for slope and cliff stabilisation were used to protect highways and tunnel portals. A computer simulation, based on a 3D laser scan, was used to determine the risk to traffic that might be posed by a rockfall.

Working with RUD Barriertech and Pamco Engineering, Trumer Schutzbauten completed the project according to the Austrian Standards for Rockfall Protection, using field-tested, certified systems as described in the ETAG 027 guideline.
